The Best Time To Visit Iceland To See Northern Lights
Nature is a force to be reckoned with and although it is hard to predict when the Northern Lights will appear there are a few things to keep in mind when planning a trip to see these wonders of Nature.
First of all, we must gaze at a clear night sky in order to see the Northern Lights. Sometimes there are active Northern Lights dancing above us but we cannot see them as the sky is not dark enough or there are too many clouds hiding our view.
Secondly, we need the sun to be active and send us strong solar winds with these electrically charged particles that in turn, create these mesmerizing Northern Lights.
Therefore, winter in Iceland is a great time to visit this magical island and get a glimpse of these wonders of nature. The long, dark and still winter nights are a perfect setting for Northern Lights sightseeing. In fact, some active one day sightseeing activities include the legendary Glacier Walk & Northern Lights or the more relaxed Northern Lights Small Group Tour. If you set aside three or four days while visiting Iceland, you can embark on a Short Break Getaway along the south coast or our Hiking, Hot Springs Northern Lights tour which was mentioned as one of the Top 5 Hiking Tours in Iceland by TravelMag.
